Ministry Partners

As a congregation, we want to be people who partner with other followers of Jesus to share his love and grace. We do this through organizations related to the broader Brethren in Christ Church as well as through other ministries that impact our community and world. We share our lives, our time, our talents, and our finances.

Below is information about organizations that the EBIC's Church Board has approved for congregational support (February 2010). Approval of an organization means that the organization's goals, service, and methods are within our congregation's Christian understanding of helping those in need. The congregation is encouraged to support, whenever possible, denominational and related ministries that meet a particular need. We hope that this is a helpful resource for Fellowship Groups, Small Groups, and others within the congregation who would like to engage in and support outreach, service, and mission organizations.

Organizations may be added to this list with the approval of EBIC's Church Board.
